Koufeya, Dooa (2015) A comparison of breast cancer prognostic tools; NPI+ and IHC4, and a development of IHC4 score calculator. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)]
This work compares two breast cancer prognostic tools; NPI+, and IHC4 to investigate the accuracy of their predictability, it also includes development of software that calculates IHC4 score. The two prognostic tools (NPI+ and IHC4) were developed to estimate risk of distant recurrence of the cancer based on clinical and biological features of breast cancer patient. The comparison was carried to reveal the superiority of one over the other, and aids clinicians to apply the proper tool for BC diagnostic.
